Progress! this quilt is coming along really well. I noticed I counted wrong for the half square triangles so dug into the yellow/orange box for two more colors I hadn’t used that color much so far.
5 rows by 5 rows of blocks with sashing will be around 96 x 96 inches and add a piano key border possibly will make it closer to 105 x 105 – plenty of room for shrinkage from washing and drying. This is not the final layout – that will be after all the blocks are made and I can stand on top of the coffee table and look down at it and see if anything needs to be shuffled around! And take photos to look at as well. Linking to Confessions of a Fabric Addict and Crazy Mom Quilts .
I might have to cut more 2.5 inch squares – the box is running low! I have 7 more large blocks to make I think. I don’t think I made anymore after that photo was taken in the middle of yesterday afternoon.
Melanie and her great niece Aniya came over last evening to help in the garden for a little – get some tomatoes and cut some flowers to bring home. I didn’t get any photos – forgot all about it but Melanie did take some photos so maybe I can get one of hers to post in a day or so. Some of these can stand to get a little more red – but what can I say a 5 year old was helping with the picking!
Recently I have been asked some questions about the Dear Jane quilt – did I have any tutorials – no I don’t – I did show some step by steps years ago when I was making it and on the side bar there might be some links to help you but I did add one to the side bar today that is a really good one – step by step tutorials on every single block and triangle. The blog name is That Quilt and if you look on the side bar of that blog she has listed row by row the blocks, click on those and you will see how they are made.
